Rising Early?……that’s new!

This is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I woke up singing the “Fifth Dimension’s” song; “Up Up and Away!” at around 5 A.M. I can hardly believe it! I don’t get up around 5 in the first place, anyway….I did….and I got the lyrics to the song, as follows:

Up Up and Away
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly, we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
The world’s a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly, we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We’ll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We’ll find a cloud to hide us
We’ll keep the moon beside us
Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you’ll hold my hand we’ll chase your dream across the sky
For we can, fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Up, up, and away
Songwriters: Jimmy Webb

Any of my fellow travelers remember this? I really like this song. Of course I would love to go up in the daytime. Phoenix AZ is very popular for Hot Air Balooning and my best friend Carol went up not long ago with her Son and Hubby; had a great time! She and I are also planning to go up together to celebrate our 4 year Sisterhood friendship when we are both in Phoenix cause we are moving there. I am really hoping to be there by this Spring;  hopefully before Easter, that would be lovely and that would be a great time to go up and see all the Cactus Flowers in bloom from the air…..how lovely that will be!

I’m listening as I type this…..this is a happy song and I’m going to do this; other than riding motorcycles this would be the most adventurous thing I would want to do…for some reason it doesn’t scare me. I have thought that I would like to hand-glide too but not alone. I think one can go up double(?)

Well, I welcome any thoughts or comments on this little missive; most unusual; here is another kool pic with an AZ baloon!

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best years of my life. Learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should, so I will and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 something. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 3 Great-grandchildren. I live in AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and do my 10 min. exercises a day through a membership in Dr. Livingood's Crews. I have cut out tons of sugar as I learned how to eat a lot healthier; I feel great! I'm brushing up on my copywriting skills and just received my first Credential for 2022; looking forward to 2023-a NEW me!!!
